    My friend and I celebrate our birthdays together every year, with Clyde's wonderful lobster dinners. The meal is always exceptional and this year was no different. The lobster was excellent as was the service (thank you Ronald (?)). Always more than expected. We-are ready for another year (and sneak in as many meals there as we can in between celebrations.

    I always enjoy dining at Clyde's Willow Creek it's one of my FAVORITE restaurants! What made my dining experience even more special this time was the fact our server took notice to my notes left on my reservation that I was treating my dear friend to dinner for her birthday. The server really made her feel special and that was really AWESOME! Thanks again Clyde's Willow Creek!

    Took out of town friend to this restaurant to get out of Tysons and have good, generic food. Cream of asparagus soup was salty and tasting burnt. No discouragement when ordered but when returned, server had said that others had commented in a similar fashion. She tasted it and agreed. Perhaps the kitchen should have tasted it and not continued to serve. Also, fries should be golden and have a crunch, not blond and somewhat soggy. Beautiful facility and very friendly staff, now the kitchen needs to catch up with them.

    The restaurant is very unique--it's an old farm with barns. It's a great place to entertain a party of people for a special occasion. The drink service was a little lacking when it came to specialty drinks. If you stick to the standard cocktails and beer, then you should be pleased.

It was a lovely evening, so we took advantage of the opportunity to eat on their great patio, though the restaurant indoors is lovely as well.

    Clyde's Willow Creek Farm is a great "special occasion" restaurant. The setting is beautiful! The crab cake is pretty good (but not great), and my only regret is that I didn't ask for no butter on my veggies, as they were swimming in butter -- too much!

    We received an email from Clyde that said September and October would be lobster month. We went on Labor Day Monday night which was the 1st of Sept. Much to our surprise, Lobster wasn't on the menu. Our server explained that this was Labor Day weekend and Lobster would not start until Labor Day weekend was officially over. In lieu of Lobster I has the swordfish special which was, as always at any Clyde's GREAT. My wife had blue catfish which was also GREAT. W will be back for the Lobster.

    The food is uniformly good, and the service is acceptable. And the menu is varied and interesting with both standard items and specials. The swordfish dish (which I personally had) was particularly good, as were the deep-fried zucchini and the shrimp skewers as appetizers. My spouse indicates that the baby back bbq ribs were also very good. I would have appreciated a bread basket as part of the service.

    A lovely country inn feel with paneled wood, oil painting of horses, fireplaces and comfort easing you into a mellow state. Food was Clyde type fare, no better no worse, a classic of its kind and what we expected. It is open very very late to our great delight, and we enjoyed the luxury of dining until midnight on Sunday in rural Virginia. We would have loved to have eaten in the woody cozy leather-chaired bar, but the "tables were closed" and we didn't want to try to keep up conversation eating cold bar food while strung out along the bar. Too bad. It looked perfect. The "Clyde's" brand keeps it from being either unique or shabby so you know what you are getting. In a great environment with great late hours.

    First, seated next to a group with small child and once that group was done - replaced with another group with small child. Since this was a time of day when the restuarant is fairly empty, more remote seating would have been good. Second, ordered a diet coke. After drinking over half the glass, I noticed a fairly large black spot of some sort of food on the inside of the glass. Doesn't make one feel real good after you have consumed some of the drink. I did not order a replacement. Overall rating of the dinner was fair at best.

    I bring my mom every year on her birthday. We're pretty discriminating foodies, and we're never disappointed. The food is garden-fresh and prepared to take advantage of the seasonal bounty. Our server, Eric, was *outstanding*. I was nervous seeing last month's reviews that critiqued the service; today's was the best we've ever had. My mom, who celebrated her 85th on Sunday, needs some special attention, and Eric was patient and eager to repeat his pitch as needed. He checked in, but not obtrusively, throughout our meal. We always have a good time, but this was the best in five+ (?) years. My only criticism is that I specifically asked to be seated where there weren't so many kids; that didn't happen. Also, the room got loud.

    We met friends from Arlington at Willow Creek this past Saturday afternoon. It is one of our favorite restaurants and everyone was looking forward to meeting and to fabulous food. Unfortunately, this was a truly out-of-character visit. The service was lukewarm, but the food...not at all what Clyde's normally prepares. The quality of the food was totally off. The gazpacho soup was so spicy that two of us couldn't even eat it. The waitress removed that charge. The peach cobbler was thick and gooey; we left much of it in the bowl. The salmon entrée was okay, not great...the French fries were cold. The house salad had approximately one and a half (it was easy to count there were so few pieces) of grape/cherry tomatoes.

    I've dined at Clyde's Willow Creek Farm for many years and love it. If you haven't been, you're missing an evening filled with great ambiance and good food. But below average service. The service doesn't measure up to the level of attention you get from DC's establishments. I don't necessarily blame the waiters; WCF gets very busy and I question whether management has sufficient employees on hand to keep up. The wait time for food from the kitchen was good on my last trip and typically is. It's the wait for the waiters to wait on you that's below average and I dine at a lot of places in DC and across the US. Don't let this wrinkle keep you from visiting WCF, tho. Enjoy the food and the scene and don't go if you are in a rush.

    For the first time (after several visits) we were disappointed in a meal at Clyde's. I had the featured swordfish which was very good but my wife had the pork tenderloin which was dry and salty. We were also joined by ants crawling on our (indoor) table which was not pleasant. We spoke to the waitress and a manager about both and they said they would look into it.

    We have been to this Clyde's before and loved it. We went this time with someone who has food allergies and the staff had prepared lists to address concerns. Then, since they have a scratch kitchen, they were willing to modify recipes when possible and do substitutions. What can sometime be a tense moment turned onto an enjoyable discussion of food!

    We are regulars at Clyde's at Mark Center. We love its ambiance and convenient parking. The food is reliably good. My mother asked us to take her to Willow Creek Farm for her birthday. We trekked an hour out from Alexandria to find a Clyde's on steroids, overflowing with business and special events. Thank God we made reservations for lunch! Parking is plentiful and convenient. We ate in a comfortable booth in a dining area decorated in an early Virginia theme with tasteful reproductions of period pictures. At the table, we got EXACTLY the same service and menu we would have received at Mark Center. A long way to come for a meal we could have had in our more charming, idiosyncratic, less industrial-scale Clyde's at Mark Center.
